Lingnan University's Philosophy (Hons) students learn about both Eastern and Western philosophical traditions and become familiar with the topics that define central areas in philosophy, such as logic, philosophy of language, ethics, and the theory of knowledge. The programme trains students to engage in informed reflection and argumentation on a wide range of philosophical questions.
Traditionally philosophy graduates go into education or the media as specialised cultural workers valued for their knowledge of central cultural traditions.
However, there has been an increasing trend in the last fifteen years in the United States and Europe for corporations to hire philosophy graduates for fast track positions as problem solvers.
In addition to giving students the knowledge they need to fill relevant positions in publishing, journalism, or teaching, the present programme emphasises the development of analytical ability and critical and creative thinking, preparing students to fulfil with distinction such positions as problem solvers.
